Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
With scenes like this today in London, I began to think should politics and sport be kept seperate?
Gordon Brown and Tessa Jowell met and welcomed the torch, and the Chinese ambassador ran with the torch yet they all argue that sports and politics shouldn't mix. I get the feeling politicians use this excuse so that they don't have to standup to China.
Should the olympics be used as a means to protest against China? I feel as if it should as the rights of humans that are more important than the 'olympic spirit'. Why is sport elevated to a higher position than that of sport and art when it comes to diplomacy?
Another thought, sport is big business - and business is almost certainly part of politics
